Kiko runs off in the forest and when Bloom follows him she finds none other than Stella battling it out with Knut who is there with some ghouls to steal her scepter. Bloom intervenes in the middle of the battle and saves Stella only to discover she has her own magical powers. Later, Stella stays on earth and then introduces Bloom to four Red Fountain boys- Riven, Sky, Brandon and Timmy. A hunter troll comes and attacks them all, the boys and the girls manage to fight him off.moreless
If you look closely, when Stella is describing all of the schools to Bloom, Musa gets a cameo appearance (She is sitting at one of the Alfea tables) and two of the Witches in Cloud Tower are wearing almost identical outfits to Bloom and Tecna! They even have the same haircolor but different styles.
In the RAI English version, it is mentioned that it is against the rules to bring a human into the magical realm.
In the UK version, there is a clip where Mitzi starts moaning about the noise from the fight, but it's edited out in the 4kids version.
When Stella says "Solaria" for the first time, she pronounces it as 'sol-aria', when it's supposed to be pronounced 'solairria.'
Goof: No bracelet on Stella at one point and then they are brought back later.
Goof: Bloom's pantleg keeps appearing and disappearing after the fight.
Sky: Dude, one summer at a swashbuckler camp doesn't mean you can go solo on a troll.
(Riven gets yanked away)
Sky: I rest my case!
Mitzy: Hey, Bloom, isn't it time to send that relic to the junk pile?
Bloom: There's nothing wrong with this bike! My dad got it for me!
Mitzy: Oh, you poor girl... Of course, I don't mean ''poor'' as in not rich, even though that is, what you are!
Stella: Hey, I just got like a great brainstorm: you should come to Alfea with me! It's like so faren away the best magic school in the whole eight-realm area!
Mike: Hold it! My daughter's not going to another realm!
Bloom: Go find an acorn Kiko and I'll toss it around with you.
Stella: Bring it on! I'm gonna whoop you and not even muss my hair!
Bloom: Do you remember when I was into fairies and witches, dad?
Mike: Of course, I do! You were so cute, always pretending to know magic.
Bloom: Well, here's the thing...
Mike: So, she's been asleep for twenty hours, because she's a fairy? Is that like a goth, or something?
Bloom: I'm talking real fairy, dad! With the scepter, magic powers and fluttering wings! She's amazing!
Mike: You must have a very high fever, I think we should call Dr. Silverman.
Bloom: Do you think I'm like the girl in that book?
Stella: Ah... Let's see... Kinda, but this book was written by humans. You're so much cooler than this! and more fashionable...
Mike: Hey, Stella, how do we get there? Car? Plane? Broomstick? Do they make a broomstick for four?
Bloom: Um, duh, Dad. Broomsticks are for witches.
Bloom: Wow, this is a really big decision...
Stella: To help you make it, I invited some of the Red Fountain boys over to your house!
Bloom: The hero guys are coming to my house? When?
Stella: Pretty soon... so let's get going!
Stella: Bloom these are the Red Fountain guys I was telling you about. Meet Riven (Riven waves two fingers), Prince Sky.
Prince Sky: Hey. (leaning on sword)
Stella: Timmy (Timmy is smiling) and Brandon.
Brandon (puts sword and shield away): How're you doing?
Riven (holding troll on leash): I got this puppy wrapped up all by myself.
Brandon: Hey, Princess Stella! I hope your friend is the pretty one in the blue pants!
Sky: Yeah, and not the ugly one at the end of the leash here.
Stella: this is an express portal. C'mon! It's cool (starts slipping in the painting). Now follow me!
Bloom: Uh... (steps on the painting and starts slipping in) Stella, this feels really weird!
Stella: Don't worry, almost no one gets lost between dimensions!
Stella: News flash, Mr. Hideous! The power of Solaria is so gonna flatten you!
Knut: You're the one who's gonna get flattened!(Charges Stella)
Bloom: That's gotta hurt.
Knut: You're finished, little fairy girl! Now, ghouls, bring me her sceptre!
Stella (struggling): I'm warning you, you'll never get away with this!
Knut: I think I just did!
